A new apartment development inspired by a heritage advertising sign, Ari Apartments, has been unveiled in Hawthorn, Melbourne.
OLA Studio decided to celebrate Hawthorne's history in the design after early demolition works revealed a 120-year-old painted advertising sign. The firm reconfigured its design so the sign could be incorporated into a feature piece of art for the project’s new residents.
Apartments in the development all have two bedrooms, two bathrooms and one car space. Apartment sizes range from 74-87 sqm and prices range from $595,000 to $780,000.
OLA Studio has entered the design into the ArchiTeam Awards under the Residential (New) category.
